    Hi, this is my second visit to WDW, I first went when I was 8 and now I'm going with my partner and three year old son, we're staying at the Dolphin hotel can you tell me anything about it? Any advice on entertaining my son on a 9 hour flight?

    Wow..Ireland...that is a long flight!!  A personal DVD player, or a laptop that plays DVD's, and bring along some Disney Movies, if you have the Vacation DVD Planner from Walt Disney World, let your son watch the movies.  This way if the movie on-board is not to your liking, he will have something to distract him.  Snacks, lots of favorite snacks.  I would bring his favorite blanket, pillow, or teddy bear, if he can chew gum for the changes in altitude for ear popping, if not gum, a lolly pop.  We took a flight to Australia, with ours and it was 12 hours...very very long...make frequent walks up and down the aisle, and some story books.  Have some Tylenol or Advil for yourselves...you may need it..

    Dolphin Hotel: Between the Dolphin and the Swan, as they share bus stops, etc. , there are 5 great pools, 5 hot tubs, a kiddie pool, beach, basketball, volleyball courts, an awesome playground that has a boat like piece and the slides are covered, pedal-boats to rent, a Ferry to Hollywood Studios, and Epcot.  Child care center on-site.  There is also a state of the art fitness center...for the adults.  I do hope you have a safe and peaceful journey to Walt Disney World.  Heather M.
